OUR LEGACY 

To us she has bequeathed 

The wisdom to use our knowledge, 

The courage to speak out for our beliefs, 

The strength to cleave to our faith, 

The morality to despise deception, 

The prudence to act with foresight. 

The zeal to inspire our felow man, 

The sagacity to espouse democracy. 

The sobriety to avoid sensationalism. 

The discrimination to recognize the truth. 

The enlightenment to suspect solicitation. 

The restraint to check our impulsiveness. 

The willingness to sacrifice, 

The audacity to be different, 

The persistence to continue. 

The incentive to become. 

The determination to succeed, 

And the industry to employ this our legacy.

McCandless Hall 

A citadel of learning more ancient than its 100 years — 
older than its antique columns yet younger than the stu- 
dents that throng its portals . . . heacon to the future, 
monument to the past. The knell is sounded, the sum- 
mons is announced. The standard is raised and the van- 
guard advances. Once again the bell tolls for thee. 

Brown Hall 





Youth with courage undaunted and spirits un- 
defiled slough tarnished dogmas, assimilate empirical 
ideologies, tailored for tomorrow.

One stands in the presence of oneself, no longer shel- 
tered within a chrysalis but thrust into the garish light 
of reality. Yesterday is dead and tomorrow is not yet 
born. For a brief and fleeting moment the world waits. 
This is a time to dream and a time to refrain from 
dreaming. This is indeed the best of times. 



A period of transition, another phase in maturation — 
the developement of the mind, the manifestation of the in- 
tellect . . . horizons extended to infinity . . . opportunity 
unrestricted. The door to the future looms ahead and 
education holds the key.

Athens College, alpha and omega . . . where one becomes 
a man and puts away childish things . . . where mature asso- 
ciations are formed, ties of friendship and bonds of love 
. . . where life is undergirded to meet the challenge of 
tomorrow.

Founders Hall, started in 1842 and finished in 1844. The four Ionic columns bear the names 
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. 



Athens Female Academy was established in 1822, three years after the 
admission of Alabama into the Union. In 1844 it was expanded to a four 
year college. 

In 1843 the Alabama legislature granted a charter incorporating the 
Athens Female Institute of the Tennessee Annual Conference of the Method- 
ist Church. In 1870 the college was transferred to the North Alabama Con- 
ference. 

The institution became co-educational in 1931 and the name was 
changed to Athens College. Athens College is one of the oldest institutions 
in the South and has operated uninterrupted through epidemics, depres- 
sions and wars. As Athens College continues to grow, we truly have a tra- 
dition and history to keep and one of which we can be equally proud.

The most recent addition to the campus 
has been the much needed gymnasium-na- 
torium. Future construction plans are still 
in the embryo stage. But ever dynamic Ath- 
ens College meets demands with action and 
expansion. A welcome complement to the 
campus is a bulletin board donated by the 
class of 1964. This board provides an ex- 
cellent media for communicating pertinent 
information. In the future a bookstore will 
be established in the basement of Naylor 
Hall that will have available paperback 
books in addition to textbooks.

The Storehouse of Knowledge . . . The Library 



The present library is located 
in Founders Hall and although 
it is well equipped its facilities 
are not adequate. Under the 
guidance of Miss Carson and 
Mrs. Horn, librarians, students 
find abundant material for ref- 
erence and research. 




!22 



Plans are being made for a completely 
renovated and expanded library in which 
students will be able to research material 
under more favorable conditions. Separ- 
ate study rooms will be provided in the 
library for such subjects as: art, music, 
history, math, science and philosophy.

Waters Hall, a modern structure at the east end 
of the campus, contains the math and science class- 
rooms and the laboratories. Each of the labora- 
tories is well supplied with the equipment needed 
for observation, examination, experimentation, and 
research. The department of math and science is 
headed by Dr. W. A. Short.

Athens College, being a church related institution 
and having numerous active Christian organizations on 
campus, considers the spiritual life of the student as 
important as the social. In order to provide a forum the 
students convene one hour each week on Wednesday 
mornings between classes in McCandless Hall auditorium 
for a Chapel program. 

The weekly program is opened with prayer and a 



brief word of inspiration. A hymn may or may not be 
sung. The guest speaker is then introduced and the lec- 
tern is his for the subsequent thirty or forty minutes. 

Included on the Chapel agenda for the previous year 
were political addresses, musical renditions, inspira- 
tional messages, and various speeches covering subjects 
from health to future employment. 



127 





Athens College not only caters to 
every facet of the student's personality, 
she also proudly confronts her students 
with a wrath of academic opportunity. 

Each department boasts qualified 
and competent professors, modern 
equipment, and up-to-date materials. 

Here at Athens College the needs of 
the whole man are recognized and 
filled.

THE BEARS IN ACTION 

The Athens College Bears are winners in the Alabama Col- 
legiate Conference this year and are hoping to enter the NAIA 
tournament . in Kansas City. Two years ago the basketball team 
made an impressive showing in the NAIA competition. 

The excellent sportsmanship evidenced by the boys and the 
spirit of cooperation among the players are prominent factors 
contributing to the team's phenomenal success this season. 

Inspired by the accomplishments of the Bears the Athens Col- 
lege students have rallied behind them and cheered the team on 
to further victories.

Registration 




154 




In spite of the infinite amount of planning 
and forethought that precedes registration, the 
end product is always the same — a hectic, con- 
fusing state of affairs that leaves students and 
faculty near physical and mental exhaustion. 

This, endurance test taxes not only one's 
resourcefulness as in schedule manipulation 
and one's ingenuity as in divining where to go 
and when but also one's patience, stamina, and 
general state of health. 

If a naive, unsophisticated freshman can 
survive the trial of registration, he has cleared 
his first hurdle in preparing himself for life in 
which one may expect the unexpected. 




\ 





"Rats" as the freshmen are traditionally 
and affectionately known are the lowest form 
of life on a campus. To them are assigned 
the commonest and most menial tasks which 
they are compelled to cany out without 
complaint and occasionally with expressions 
of joy at being able to sei"ve. 

A rat's excuse for being is to entertain 
his betters, the upperclassmen. Any reason- 
able request must be fulfilled upon demand 
— regardless of how embarrassing it may 
be for the participant. 

To the relief of the freshmen RAT 
WEEK lasts only 7 days and is climaxed by 
a sock hop in honor of the newly initiated 
freshmen.

Fairytale- Treat Day 



After seven years at Athens College, Donji, Judge Rosenau's dog becomes a freshman. Who said 
rat week was for the dogs? 




Various items of delight are 
found on the RAT WEEK MENU. 
These treats are designed to 
brighten the lives of those over- 
worked and under-recreated upper 
classmen. 

On one day the Rats came to 
classes dressed as their favorite 
fairy tale character. 

Another memorable evening 
was devoted to the pajama parade.

"Mr. and Miss Rat" 



Air Raid Rat, Air Raid! 




Stanley Brown Janet Newman 



Despite the tribulations of being a RAT 
the freshmen seem to enjoy themselves. RAT 
WEEK participation is carried out on a 
strictly voluntary basis and is governed by 
strict rules formulated by the SGA. 

Although a rat may be "on call" twenty- 
four hours a day, it is all in fun and a part 
of college adjustment and orientation. 

Toward the end of the week a Mr. and 
Miss Rat are elected as best representative 
of the freshman in RAT WEEK. 

When all is over but the shouting any 
RAT will tell you it was really fun. 



Congratulations Rat, you made it. 





Plays 





The dramatic department has not been idle. 
First major production of 1964 was All the 
Way Home, a prize winning play adapted from 
the Pulitzer prize winning book A DEATH IN 
THE FAMILY by James Agee. The most am- 
bitious and successful production of the year 
was a Robert Mulder version of Learner and 
Lowe's musical Camelot. This musical featured 
both amateur and professional actors and musi- 
cians. 



Doggone costume. 



162 



Lefs Dance 



From sockhops to Sadie Hawkins dance the 
campus rocks with music. Dances, seemingly weird 
and ecstatic interpretations of tribal rites, include the 
DOG, the MONKEY, and the WATUSI. 

All that is needed for a swinging evening is a 
stack of platters, a turn table, and a room full of 
students abounding with energy. 





163

The Beauty Ball 



The most formal and most impressive dance of the year is the 
Beauty Ball held at Christmas. At this time the Beauties and favorites 
which will be pictured in the annual are presented. 

For this occasion an orchestra plays, a leadout is staged, and all 
the girls wear floor length gowns. 

The decorations for the Beauty Ball are always most elaborate 
and may or may not feature the Christmas motif. 





167 



Those who do much work and reap little glory are the students on the 
social committee. Laborers to decorate the Armory must be recruited and 
since materials are at a premium talent is an important factor. This is one 
quality which Athens College has an abundance of. 






168

O'Neal. 



The Beauty 



Review 




The girls who are represented 
in the Beauty Review are elected 
from the various classes and organi- 
zations on the campus. 

The girls are then eliminated 
through interviews and careful scru- 
tiny until the elect few that remain 
are the Beauty and the Favorite rep- 
resentatives for the annual, and are 
presented at the ball which is in 
their honor.

Social life on the campus includes 
both the impromptu and the very formal. 
Falling in the latter category are the 
teas given each quarter at the president's 
home hosted by Dr. and Mrs. McCain. 

These teas afford an occasion for 
students to become better acquainted with 
the faculty, administration and their fel- 
low students.

The time must eventually come when the bridge 
cards are carefully packed away and the students dis- 
engage themselves from their social obligations and en- 
gage in more serious pursuits. 







Only when the student has tired of bridge, gossip, dances, and day- 
dreams will he have occasion to complain of boredom. This is a dangerous 
confession, however, for it is a dull, shallow man who becomes bored with 
himself.

All mankind is of one author and is one volume; when one man dies 
a chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; 
and every chapter must be so translated. . . . God's hand is in every 
translation and his hand shall bind up all our scattered leaves again for that 
library where every book shall be open one to another.
